upgrade tomboy notes

i am using tomboy 0.3.5 on fc5.
i want it to upgrade it with latest 0.10.0.
while trying to build it from source code i got the following errors
while running ./configure

checking for GTKSPELL... no
checking for DBUS... configure: error: Package requirements (ndesk-dbus-1.0 >= 0.4 ndesk-dbus-glib-1.0 >= 0.3) were not met:

No package 'ndesk-dbus-1.0' found
No package 'ndesk-dbus-glib-1.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables DBUS_CFLAGS
and DBUS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

What should i do ?

Quick answer: upgrade your Fedora!

This is why Linux comes in distros. When you install programs from source, you are left with the job of ensuring that all their requirements are met. You are short of one file (GTKSPELL) and need two upgrading (ndesk-dbus, ndesk-dbus-lib).

Try updating your tomboy with

yum update tomboy

You might find the Fedora repository no longer copes with Fedora 5, but no harm can be done if that is the case.

I agree with DavidMcCann that you should upgrade your distro to get a better experience, but in this case you can drop Tomboy's dbus integration by running ./configure with the --disable-dbus flag. Make sure you use the correct --prefix when running ./configure, too. For most distros you would want to use --prefix=/usr to overwrite the system-installed Tomboy.

But please seriously consider upgrading your Fedora install. It is much easier and will save you a lot of time whenever you get an itch for new versions.
